Yesterday was Ruby’s birthday. She turned 6 or 42 depending on whether you count in regular years or dog years. Can you see that she’s turning gray around the muzzle? Ruby was born in the back of a beat up old Volvo in Austin, TX 6 years ago. She has 4 brothers and sisters – there’s Rio, Zuni, Hoss, the black one who’s owner didn’t give him a name even a whole year later. Was there one more? I can’t remember. Anyhow, we gave Ruby a whole juicy steak to celebrate. She seemed pleased.
